Cloud-enabled Protection of Data Integrity and Authenticity of Electronic Content

October 29, 2009

Surety CEO Tom Klaff was invited to speak at the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) 5th Annual IT Security Automation Conference on the topic of Cloud-enabled Protection of Data Integrity and Authenticity of Electronic Content. It’s a timely topic given the rise of cloud computing and increasing concerns about cloud security and the ability to authenticate and legally defend data and electronic records stored in the cloud. Here is NIST’s overview of the conference:

The 5th Annual IT Security Automation Conference, hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security, National Security Agency, and Defense Information Systems Agency, will focus on emerging technologies designed to support the security automation needs of multiple sectors. This 4-day workshop, conference, and expo includes tracks on the use of security automation in support of healthcare IT, the use of security automation tools and technologies to ease the technical burdens of policy compliance, and the benefits of integrating security automation into the rapidly evolving cloud computing sector. Security automation leverages standards and specifications to reduce the complexity and time necessary to manage vulnerabilities, measure security, and ensure compliance, freeing resources to focus on other areas of the IT infrastructure.

Tom’s presentation is below, but you can view the full roster of sessions and presentations from the conference online here.

If you’re a cloud provider, what is your organization doing to ensure data integrity for data and records stored in the cloud?
